Hello. Escape Kitty here today along with Jennifer Snyder preparing for Thanksgiving in the US at the Snyder/Kitty household.
It starts with a little "hats off" to the Pilgrims who settled in the US many many moons ago after a long journey from England on the Mayflower. The first Thanksgiving feast was held in the Autumn of 1621 between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag in celebration of the colony's first successful harvest.
Today, we prepare by dressing Kitty in traditional Pilgrim wear and popping a turkey feathered tail on her - to symbolize the traditional food many of us eat in the US on this holiday. This day is also one for giving thanks for the bountiful blessings around us. I remain thankful that Kitty puts up with such shenanigans in letting us dress her up.
We have also used the Autumn theme here of golds, olives and rich warm colors as well as leaves.
The gold metal flowers pictured below are the wonderful Metal Adornments from the Flying Unicorns store. I simply rubbed them with Rub 'N Buff in golf leaf to give them a nice gold shine.
The butterfly at the top is also Flying Unicorns Metal Adornments -Wings (Butterflies) rubbed with gold Rub N Buff as well.
The leaves and flowers are from Prima Marketing.
I did a little sewing on the patterned papers.
Those supplies listed with links are available in the Flying Unicorn stare and are linked for your shopping convenience.
Thanks so very much - have a wonderful Sunday
